Kindle Fire tablets are some of the best Android tablets out there and they even come at a bargain price. The only downside is that they are limited to Amazon’s app store but with a little tweak you could make use of Google’s Play Store on them thus being able to run any app that you wish with some few simple steps which we are going to mention here.
First of all you will need to have a Kindle Fire for obvious reasons. This guide will be split in two parts as the easiest way to install any Android app is to directly download APK installer files and them manually installing them directly to your device and the second way is to install Google Play Store which can be further used as it would be on any other device.
In order to manually install Android APK files you’ll just have to download them from third-party websites which provide them. First of all you need to toggle the option of installing apps from unknown sources from your Kindle Settings menu. Once you’ve downloaded an APK file a notification will appear and you’ll just have to click it in order to get installed, being similar to a Windows exe file.
The second method is a bit tricky as it requires you to enable developer options which can be accessed through Kindle’s device options. Second make sure you have installed ADB on your Windows PC and connect your device via USB cable. Thirdly, you’ll have to update ADB’s drivers via its direct menu and once that’s done install Google Play Store and remove ads from the lock screen.
An extra bit of advice is to disable OTA updates from Amazon which may break your apps after a new update is being installed on the device. You should now be able to enjoy every app that you wish from Google Play Store on your Kindle Fire.
